ABB motor and gear unit packages

Monday, 29 August, 2011 | Supplied by: ABB Australia Pty Ltd



ABB has released a comprehensive offer of motor and gear unit packages that enables robot integrators to create custom solutions for work piece positioners, robot carriers, track motions, servo guns and indexing conveyers. The motor and gear units are designed to optimise cost-efficiency and performance and to simplify integration and operation.

The motor units come in four sizes, including an extra-large motor (MU400) that is suitable for high-power applications such as turntables. The gear units are being offered in the same seven versions that are currently built into ABB’s positioners, including both MTD (for positioning) and MID (for interchange) units. These standard motor and gear units have been well tested, are designed to work with other ABB equipment and are easily available as spare parts.

The extended packages also include flexible cables to simplify integration and prolong life expectancy. In addition, ABB is offering serial measurement boards, push-buttons for brake release and axis selectors for greater safety and control.

To ensure that integrators building customised positioners can tune both motor and gear unit parameters in order to achieve improved motion performance in less time, ABB is also introducing a RobotWare software tool - TuneMaster.
